Where To Buy

    Key Technologies

    The NSS12 evo2 is engineered for performance, functionality and flexible control. Its TouchSensible interface provides multi-touch interaction for ease of use when cruising, as well as a keypad and a rotary push-to-enter dial for quick and effective use on those days when waves and boat movement make it hard to use a touchscreen accurately.

    Simrad Yachting’s HEROiC software has been optimised for the NSS12 evo2’s widescreen HD display and multi-touch interface, making use of common gestures that smartphone and tablet users will find familiar. A new Nav page puts key navigational information together in one place, and customisable favourites allow quick access to the functions you use most.

    The NSS12 evo2’s integrated SonarHub™ sounder combines award-winning StructureScan® HD sonar imaging, for a 180-degree picture-like view of the bottom, with CHIRP-enabled Broadband Sounder™ technology, for reliable fish detection and accurate bottom tracking at all depths.

    The NSS12 evo2 provides full autopilot integration for control from its TouchSensible display, and the embedded high-gain 10Hz GPS/GLONASS receiver provides precise location information without external hardware on most fibreglass boats.

    Engineered for form and function, the NSS12 evo2 enhances the helm of any vessel. Its flush-mount design provides a professional, low profile look that is complemented by classic black or brushed silver trim panels – both included with every system.

    GoFree™ Wireless
    Available with the optional WIFI-1 module, GoFree™ wireless capabilities connect your multifunction display to the world. Browse and purchase a wide range of cartography online from the GoFree™ Shop, downloading charts directly to your display’s memory card without leaving the helm.  Upload sonar logs recorded during your voyages directly from your display to the Insight Genesis cloud service, which creates detailed depth-contour, vegetation location, and bottom hardness maps – the perfect way to better explore your favourite inland and coastal fishing spots.

    Anywhere you have a wireless internet connection, you have access to GoFree™ services – from your home Wi-Fi when your boat is trailered in the driveway, to your marina’s Wi-Fi when you’re sitting at the dock.

    Out on the water, GoFree™ brings the screen of your multifunction display right to your iPhone or Android smartphone, and lets you control your display remotely from your iPad or Android tablet.

    Bridge Control
    Easily manage multiple displays across a helm station with Bridge Control. Link up to four displays as a ‘bridge’, then create your own bridge presets for activities such as docking, navigation, fishing, or diving. Bridge presets control what appears on each display, and let you configure an entire helm station with just one simple action.

    Bridge Control effortlessly extends to vessels with dual helms or multiple stations, with the ability to define up to four separate bridges. Each bridge has its own displays and presets: set up the cockpit with echosounder and StructureScan displays for fishing, while dedicating your flybridge displays to navigation and autopilot. Adapt your configuration as your needs or equipment change, with the ability to create, edit, and delete bridges and presets on the fly.

    Bridge Control works with any of the Simrad NSS evo2 multifunction displays, and NSO evo2 modular performance navigation systems. For more than two displays, additional NSS evo2 displays or NSO evo2 processors are required.

    Integrate and Expand
    The Simrad NSS12 evo2 can be expanded and enhanced to suit boaters’ specific needs, with Simrad Yachting and Simrad Professional Series performance modules.

    Add 4G broadband radar, StructureScan HD, GoFree™ wireless connectivity, SonicHub marine audio with iPod/iPhone dock, and more.

    With dual chart card slots built in, you’re free to choose from a wide range of cartography options to best suit your location and usage. The NSS12 evo2 has support for C-MAP MAX-N+ 2015, Navionics, Insight, Insight Genesis and NV Digital Charts.

    Navionics Autorouting / Jeppesen Easy Routing
    Automatic routing brings the convenience of in-car navigation to boating, giving you the confidence to navigate unfamiliar waters and letting you get underway with less delay.

    Navionics Autorouting and Jeppesen Easy Routing are both fully supported on the NSS12 evo2. Simply select a destination, and the chartplotter will automatically suggest the shortest, safest route taking into consideration the draught and dimensions of your vessel.

    Navionics Autorouting works with Navionics+ or Navionics Platinum charts. Jeppesen Easy Routing requires Jeppesen CMAP MAX-N+ charts.

    * Automatic routing features are unavailable in North America.

    Jeppesen C-MAP MAX-N+ 2015 support
    The NSS12 evo2 supports the full range of Jeppesen C-MAP MAX-N+ 2015 charts and features. Find a safe berth with detailed harbour charts; high-definition photos and diagrams of ports and marinas; and C-Marina Port Info including hours of operation, VHF call-in details, and nearby accommodation and restaurants.
